, congressional republicans have held the full faith and credit of the united states of america hostage for political points and debates. instead of doing what congress has always done under both parties, allowing the government to pay the bills it has accrued. they decided to play a game of chicken with the global economy. reporter: paul ryan, we are told, is working on a budget plan that would balance within 10 years. it is expected that patty murray's idea of the budget will be quite different. but the bottom line is a lot of people who say we need the budget with this debt of $16 trillion are going, will be glad to get to the table and work on an actual budget speech you we will see how it turns out. mike emanuel, thank you very much be one a fox news weather alert. extreme winter weather is gripping parts of the south. arctic air and freezing rain expected from arkansas to the north carolina and south carolina area. dangerous driving conditions. up to a quarter inch of ice can accumulate. people in the upper midwest and northeast are wondering when the cold will end. another day of

. >> why the israel does these things and united states does drone strikes is to get at problems earlier before they met -- metastasize into bigger problems. maybe they think we could attack israel and would distract from our own civil conflict. this is to act as deterrents to that sort of thing. there is obviously a short term risk there will be realtation from hezbollah or syria. that is why you've seen the iron dome deployments to israel. in the long run this is met to keep the most dangerous weapons out of the hands of groups like hezbollah. jenna: what do you think is happening now on the ground, michael, that israel would make this move now rather than, let's say six months ago? >> well i think, jenna, you look what happened in gaza for example. there was, seems as though there was probably intelligence indicating that big rockets were being moved into gaza. i think israel tends to act based upon indications of specific an imminent threats, just like the united states does. so there was probably some information that something was being moved from one place to another and of course

'll turn to the economy now. a new warning about the united states and our credit rating as the debt battle kicks into high gear. congress has just weeks to increase our debt ceiling. fitch, a leading credit ratings agency, says a repeat of the 2011 debt limit crisis would spark a formal review of our country's aaa rating. that could mean a downgrade by them. now you might remember, s&p, a different agency, already downgraded our country in 2011. that was the first time in our history that that happened. the president is taking a hard-line stand, issuing a warning of his own to the gop. >> we have to pay our bills. congress has two choices here. we can act responsibly and pay america's bills. or they can act irresponsibly and put america through another economic crisis. but they will not collect a ransom in exchange for not crashing the american economy. jenna: republicans like congressman jason chaffetz blasting back against the president. >> i think the president was terribly irresponsible today. to say he will not talk about it because he is above it, but blame all of congress, in part c

of them were being attached to some of those front-line units. secretary panetta plans to lift the military's ban on women serving in combat. that ban has been in place since 1994. the service chiefs have until january, 2016 to seek exceptions to certain things, certain units. women who have been affected by the ban say that they were denied promotions as a result of the discriminatory policy, jon. jon: what about women who are actively serving right now. what is the reaction? >> reporter: the reaction has been welcomed by those who joined the aclu, the american civil liberties union in suing panetta last year for these positions to open up. there were four service members who did sue panetta last year. secretary pa ne panetta had started this earlier in the year. he opened up 14,000 positions earlier this year. this is not new. i spoke to the first fighter pilot to fly in combat and she had this to say about the naysayers. >> the same arguments were being made back then that are being made now against this policy change that is happening in order to catch up with reality on th
religious and civic groups that sponsor scouting units the freedom to decide the matter for themselves. doug mckelway live in washington for us with more on this this would be a sudden reversal of policy right, doug? >> reporter: sure would, jon. only seven months ago in fact the organization reaffirmed its ban on homosexuality but apparently has come under tremendous pressure from two of its board members and some of its chapters to change its ways. the new policy, if adopted would allow individual chappers and troops to decide for themselves whether to accept gays. for families who have long seen the boy scouts as a refuge for traditional values the proposed policy change is deeply disturbing. >> the overwhelming majority of families in scouts adhere to a traditional bib lickal view of moral values which we think homosexuality is incompatable. we don't want our sons mentored by gay men. >> reporter: others say the scouts ha long had gays this their ranks who were forced to suffer silently with their secrets. we have a former eagle scout and an openly gay man. >> i work with younger people
. the senate of the united states hasn't passed a budget inover three years. harry reid has held the american public hostage by not presenting a budget. i know the white house is running behind in their budget proposal. the white house budget proposal last year got no republican votes and got no democrat votes. so if we want to look at what's best for our country in the future, we have to look at dealing with the spending from the standpoint of our own national security. we are vulnerable right now -- jenna: there's no accountability, right, senator? this has been going on and on, and so far there's to budget, and there's no budget. what can the american people do? what will it take to actually get that? >> well, and it's a violation of the law. the senate and congress has to pass a budget, but yet they refuse to do it, and today take, harry reid takes his orders from the top. the president, obviously, doesn't want a budget, doesn't want to face up to his own spending addiction which is putting us more dependent to other nations and, specifically china. that is the big problem with this admin
governments? >> well, senator, congratulations to you as well. and welcome to this committee. the united states notified to the libyan government the specific names of people who were serving in libya in both tripoli and in benghazi. that in no way affected the legal obligation of libya under the hague, under the vienna convention. the problem as i said was not their willingness. it was their capacity. and as you know, from the first time chris stevens arrived before the fall of qaddafi, he relied not on any libyan governmental security but on the february 17th brigade. we supplemented that after qaddafi's fall with ds agents, with private security contractors. so, there was no effect on anything from the libyan government that was related to that. however, we do think that need to be looked at going forward. the arb made a very important point. that the so-called temporary nature of the mission did prove to be confusing to people down the chain, responsible for reading those cables. we get about, i don't know, how many millions of cables do we get. i have to confess i do not read all th

in this situation. jon: yeah, the iranians were supposed to sit down with the united states and some other nations for some nuclear talks, can't even agree on a location for the talks. it is thought that it might somehow handicap them if news of this thing gets out, and that's why they don't want to talk about it? what can you tell us about that? >> well, frankly, to me it's an interesting theory, in terms of what would make talks effective with iran. my own sense is that when a nation like iran, north korea handsome others -- jon: i'm sorry to interrupt. we have breaking news news. we'll have to go. jaime: just this n. let's listen to the president speaking to police chiefs about gun violence. >> sheriffs who are here today representing law enforcement officials all across the country who obviously share our deep concern about issues of gun safety and how we can protect our communities and keep our kids safe. you know, a couple of weeks ago i appeared along with joe to present the administration's ideas, in terms of steps that we have to take, on i issued a number of executive actions that could
